2v2: 2 players vs 2 players
In this version, 2 players will play as a Team 1 vs another 2 players who will play as Team 2.
Setup: Team 1 sits together on one side of the table, and Team 2 sits on the other side of the table. Each team will draw 9 tiles; selecting 1 tile to be their team’s Start Tile, then dividing up the remaining tiles so each player starts with 4 tiles face up in front of them, forming each player’s hand.
Upon starting, each player can only play from their hand, and can only play on their team’s play area (soccer balls). Once a player’s hand is less than 4 tiles, they can draw from the draw pile until they have 4 tiles again.
All other rules are the same as the 1v1 rules. Team with the most points after ‘Overtime’ is the winner.
In this version, a player will play a “solitaire version” of the game and try to score as many goals as possible.
The object of this game is to score as many points as possible by completing soccer balls! Once finished, check your score on our Soccer Genius Scale.
To play the single player game (or solo play), first shuffle all the tiles face down. Draw 6 tiles from the Tile Pile and expose them face up in front of you. Select one of these 6 tiles to be your Start Tile leaving you with 5 exposed tiles. This will be referred as ‘your hand’. See below for example ..
You can only have up to 5 tiles exposed at anytime in your hand.
To start the game, play 1 tile on the exposed Start Tile and start building your “soccer play area”. Once you play a tile, draw a new tile from the Tile Pile to return your hand to 5 exposed tiles. Then go again!
Note: You may not move tiles once played.
You’re trying to complete soccer balls since for every soccer ball completed you’ll earn 1 point.
If you are unable to play, you have to discard 1 tile (choose carefully). Use the empty game box for your discard tiles. Then draw a new tile from the Tile Pile so you have 5 tiles in your hand again. Play resumes. Hopefully the tile you drew can be played. If not, you’ll have to discard another tile, then draw again.
Play until all the tiles in the Tile Pile have been played or discarded.
See the rules for the multi-player game for reference on how to play tiles properly. Tiles must be played in the same direction. You can only play vertically or horizontally on any tile already played. You can not play diagonally. Tiles must line up or fit naturally with the creature you are connecting to, meaning the creature(s) must match perfectly. You can not connect tiles just using the green “grass” side of the tile.
If your soccer play area becomes “locked”, meaning no more possible plays, you can select one of the tiles from your hand and start a new soccer player area. In the end, count your points from both soccer play areas.
For each completed soccer ball you get 1 point.
